15 years of low-budget filmmaking…

“I can’t believe it’s been 15 years since we started Creepy Six Films… nor can I hardly believe that it’s already been 5 years since launching our new production company, Brivido Giallo. While the latter came about with a different cinematic vision and in a slightly more organic way while spending time in Europe, I still remember clearly the origins of Creepy Six Films. Standing at an intersection in North Vancouver (a literal intersection, not a metaphorical one), and coming up with the concept and name for Creepy Six Films with Nicole Hancock – back in 2001…”

“…We were waiting on the corner of 3rd Street & Lonsdale Avenue – two blocks from our one-bedroom apartment at the time – and it had been a couple of days since we’d finished the last scenes of our freshman film, Corpse-O-Rama. We’d shot the entire thing on film, 16mm, and ended up releasing 50 VHS copies – some went to distributors, but most went to the cast and crew – and to a little local horror movie store called Reel Horror, which was owned and operated by a young couple from Montreal, Gene and Jessica. Anyway, that hadn’t happened yet, Nicole (Nicki) and I were standing at the intersection waiting for the light to change and verbally brainstorming ideas for the name of our low-budget production company. Since we’d actually filmed 6 segments for Corpse-O-Rama, which was supposed to be a horror anthology film a la Creepshow (although at least one of those stories were left on the cutting room floor), so I exuberantly threw out there: “Nicki’s Six Films!” to which she shot me a hairy eyeball complete with a single hoisted eyebrow. “No way,” she said. Behind us, half a block down, was a small independent comic book store I used to go to to peruse the tight aisles. I remembered that that was where I’d first discovered the line of horror comics titled CREEPY. And that was it. “Creepy Six Films,” I said.”

“Reversed” reviewed by Cosi Perversa

Many thanks to Cosi Perversa for their amazing review of REVERSED!

“Writer / Director Vince D’Amato returns with REVERSED, his fifth full length movie taking influence from the recent wave of neo-giallo (particularly that of Cattet and Forzani) as much as the more traditional, Italian films of the sixties and seventies.

Even a cursory scan of the plot synopsis puts one in mind of the description of AMER and while REVERSED possesses a few leanings towards that (arguably) seminal film it clearly possesses a unique identity and more than enough tricks of it’s own to make D’Amato a peer of his more famous colleagues rather than follower…”
